Cissy Houston and Bobby Brown are supposedly battling it out over the guest list for Bobbi Kristina's funeral. Scheduled for Saturday at the St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia, the funeral is by invite-only, and it's apparently those invites that have the Houston and Brown families at odds with one another again.

Bobbi Kristina will be buried in New Jersey on Monday, beside her mom Whitney Houston. This is no doubt a huge relief for Cissy Houston who lives in New Jersey and will be able to visit both her daughter and granddaughter's graves at the same time.

Cissy Houston has reportedly put her foot down to Bobby Brown over certain members of his family that she doesn't want attending Bobbi Kristina's funeral.

“Family is supposed to come together at this time and you would think now that Krissy is gone they would. But it’s not the case,” a source says. “Bobbi hasn’t been gone 24 hours and Cissy [Houston] already making it clear to Bobby [Brown] that she doesn’t want certain members of his family at her wake or funeral. She doesn’t anyone trying to make a quick buck off selling pictures of Bobbi in a coffin like someone did to Whitney.”

That does make sense, seeing as how a picture of Whitney Houston in the funeral home was sold and published in numerous media outlets after her death.

“Cissy wants this process to be peaceful, respectful and to handled with dignity. She’s made her demands clear to Bobby and she’s enlisting the help of her Houston family members to support her in this decision," the source adds.

It will certainly be interesting to learn who winds up invited to Bobbi Kristina Brown's funeral and who doesn't. And it will be interesting to see if Bobby Brown and Cissy Houston acknowledge one another at the funeral.

Even though Bobbi Kristina's funeral won't be televised like Whitney Houston's was, the press will definitely be outside, reporting on the comings and goings of family members and guests.
